About Frances Blackie

Hi I'm Fran,

Since retiring I have moved to Townsville, I love the North Queensland Lifestyle, the weather, the walks the outdoor living, whilst still keeping my Melbourne home. I love visiting my Melbourne friends and relatives and this gives me somewhere convenient to stay when in town. I love to share my properties with travellers.

Frances Blackie purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Frances Blackie chose Townsville City

Townsville was a regular holiday destination over the years.

I purchased my Breakwater Quays apartment in 2010, I love the huge outdoor courtyard as this is where I eat all meals cooked on the Weber and entertain my guests visiting. When in Townsville I walk The Strand every morning, a great way to clear my mind and plan the day ahead.

What makes this apartment unique

Walking distance to restaurants, cafes bars and cinemas. Bus and Ferry terminal directly opposite the apartment.

Walk across road to catch Magnetic Island ferry and 20 minutes later in Magnetic Island.

Beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, the apartment was positioned in a great location close to the strand, water park and restaurants. It was very spacious with a great entertaining area. All the little extra's was greatly appreciated. It was like a home away from home. Our teenage kids who enjoyed the free wifi to :). We would most certainly stay again.
